A sensory exhibition curated by UNIT X 


For one night only, MadLab is being transformed by MMU’s Unit X with an immersive exhibition that will delight the senses and challenge every-day perceptions. Guests will be guided around the building and encouraged to interact with their surroundings resulting in a visualisation of MadLab’s unique network of talented community groups.

Upstairs there will be a showcase space where community groups will be exhibiting what they have been working on providing an exclusive opportunity for the public to see what exciting projects are being undertaken amongst the MadLab community.

There will also be a chance to meet and chat to MadLab staff members and group members to hear about existing and ongoing projects.

This is a fantastic opportunity for the curious to come and discover all that MadLab has to offer.

The event is completely free and doors open at 6pm until late. If you around the area, pop in and start your discovery!

Hello photographers!

We are morePHOTO and this is our second event. more’s aim is to provide a regular platform for photographers to socialise and join group critique sessions on their work.

Our plan is to host regular moreSOCIAL events where we will meet up for drinks, get some food and go to local shows & events. We want to bring Manchester’s photography community closer together.

We will also be hosting regular moreCRIT sessions. One of the main things we hear from talking to graduates is how they miss the formal group critique sessions that university offers. Well, we’re going to organise these for you!

There we will have an introduction to moreCRIT and the group morePHOTO followed by small group critiques. We ask everyone to bring along some work either books, portfolios or prints. At the end we hope everyone leaves feeling inspired, a list of suggested material to look at, some new contacts and some new mates!

There is a projector available for displaying digital works.

Each month we come along and talk about various subjects relating to our favourite OS, but this we don’t know. I believe it would be extremely interesting and lead to further avenues for future meetings.
